Expensive ingredients but wish for fuller flavour experience

Looks like this place gained a Michelin star as I expected. However visiting the restaurant again I think things have changed. Still good (and now costs a lot more) but I felt that there was over-use of expensive ingredients and the flavours were not as well thought out to permeate through the... read more

Amazing 6 course tasting menu (plus entree), with incredible seafood at it's heart. Brilliantly fresh prepared crab with cockles & mussels, prawn fritters with caviar, squid slow cooked in it's ink, seafood risotto, perfect white fish (hake we think!) in a delicate lemon grass sauce, duck with 3 sauces - orange, fig and pineapple, macerated strawberries, caramel and toffee confection....

Tucked away in a small ribadesella street, this cozy restaurant delivers good service and an imaginative menu amongst the towns more traditional restaurants.

This restaurant is well worth searching out. The food is top quality and the service is too. We chose the set tasting menu (35 Euros) and treated ourselves to the wine pairing (15 Euros) and were well pleased with both. All the dishes were very tasty - the main fish course was superb - and the wines were well matched.... More

What a find! Hidden in one of the narrow streets in Ribadesella is this wonderful restaurant. The degustation menu was our choice. The flavours were amazing and the presentation of each dish a work of art. Jaime Uz is a truly talented chef. The service was impeccable and the price very reasonable for a Michelin star restaurant.

One of the problems about eating out in Spain is that 95% of restaurants serve up the very same Spanish dishes. Quite often, the only difference is the price and the quality of the food but it just gets a little boring. We're spoiled in the UK where we have a huge range of food from all over the world...

A real gem in a quiet back pedestrian street. Jaime Uz is a fabulous and talented chef- creative, managing to balance flavors superbly. I cannot say enough about how much I enjoyed the food - great appetizers (don't miss the scallops and the apple gazpacho), the terrific rice dishes (yummy carabinero risotto) and amazing desserts (make sure you order the...

My hubby and I treated ourselves to a meal here on a Friday night. We had the set meal for €35 per person. It consisted of several small taster dishes. Ranging from cod, shellfish and beef. The food was like a work of art and tasted wonderful. Like being on an episode of Masterchef. Service was excellent and we felt... More

I went to this restaurant alone and in clothes I use on the Camino. I went in thinking this is a very nice looking place, they won't want me here. Arbidel was nothing like that.. It was such a warm welcome the food was incredible (best I've had all trip) and the staff amazing. They were always smiling and happy... More

We were 5 and only 1 of 2 tables served that evening. The food was outstanding and the service right up there. It' s been the most expensive meal of our ongoing Northern Spain trip but worth it. Its Michelin star is well deserved.
